    I just recently joined, as "Picard" brought me back into the Trek orbit, but DS9 will always be my # 1 love.

    Same for me. I got really into Trek in high school, but then I cooled on it as my interests started to grow in other directions. But the announcement of Picard rekindled the fire, and I've spent the last several months revisiting each series. DS9 is still my #1.

    Exact same story here. I think I checked out during season 2 of ENT. Was in college then. Neither the Abrams movies or that first free episode of Discovery really lit the fire for me again.

    DS9 is my all-time favourite Trek, so it's likely I'll be most active here of all the Trek sections. I picked my middle name, Benjamin, for Ben Sisko. :)

    Hi i think it's great that others appreciate DS9
    I must admit to start with that i didn't find DS9 as appeakling as the others to begin with, set on a space station rather than traveling out into deep space, however it is now my favourite Trek series, the story and sub plots and the material in general as well as the characters are brilliant

    Just got drawn into trying DS9 again thanks to Picard. What are some good eps to watch? I only have a one month sub to CBS All Access, so I can't watch all of it.

    Start with season 4 when Worf joins the cast...... But you'd miss out some good episode from season 1-3, like Duet.

    One month and the current lockdown would be enough for binge-watching it :D

    Thanks! Been catching up with some of the earlier stuff too. Just finished up with pt 1 and 2 of Past Tense. It was very good and sadly very relevant today.

    I wish! :lol: But I try to watch an ep or so a day.

    Just think of the poor people who watched it as it first aired. One episode per week, summers off.

    Or start with "the Jem Hadar", and then start with season three.

    Did that with Next Generation. No harm there. Not much of a binge person myself to be honest. :lol:

    Hello, everybody.

    Yep, you'll surely find some trek enthusiasts here in Brazil. I am 58YO and I had the chance to feel in love with SCIFI since I was a teen, original Star Trek series from the 60's being my first experience with sci-fi series (Portuguese dubbed, it started in Brazil after the end of the '60s if I am not wrong). It was but recently that I had the chance to watch all episodes from Star Trek - original and next-generation -, Voyager, Enterprise, and Deep Space Nine (thanks, Netflix!). I must confess I love them all their own way, no chances I would dare to compare ones with the others. If I did so, I'd surely find preferences in their differences, and that is simply not fair. I am watching the 2018's documentary "What We Left Behind - Looking Back at Deep Space Nine" right at this moment and I decided to find a forum in order to manifest myself in favor of those who appreciate Deep Space Nine as it is before I get to the end of it. I am one of them, definitely. I did not begin to watch it looking for similarities with the other series, and I found myself pleased with the breath of fresh air it brought to me. Chances are that I felt that way because I did not create expectations myself. Deep Space Nine is a remarkable series of its own. I applause the crew, writers, directors and actors, all the same, all together. Having changellings, ferengis, bajorians, cardasians along with humans having their roles separately and as heterogeneous groups was remarkably good. Outstanding! Thank you all!

    Hi, I'm Herbert. Long time Star Trek fan, first time DS9 fan.

    For some odd reason I didn't watch DS9 when it first came out. I think I was feeling a little Trek burnout at the time. I also didn't like the idea of a Trek show that didn't take place on a ship. Yes, I was one of those :lol: However, I am watching it now and enjoying it quite a bit.

    Hey everyone. Last time I posted in this thread I was at season 3, but that was a long time ago. So now I have finished all of DS9. It's my favorite series in Star Trek, with TNG closely behind. My favorite episode is The Visitor, and I know it might not be the most popular, but my favorite season is the 7th and last one. The last episodes were amazing. This forum is pretty awesome, and I'm excited to be here!

    I like season 7 a lot too. I liked the frequent visits to Cardassia.
